journal editorial board and dr. scott gottlieb's, former policy for centers for medicare and medicaid services. welcome to you both. i will start with you. let me read you what the obamacare administration is sayingbout what is essentially a 30 day delay. they say it is to give insurers the benefit of more time to evaluate there experiences during the 2014 plan year and allow them to take into account those who may enroll late including youngdults before setting 2015 rates. >> that is probably right because the insurers are going to have a hard time submitting bi. >> there were not going to have a lot to go on. e administration is worried. this hurts consumers. there will have wait. gerri: calling me skeptical. this is a bold political bid not to get in trouble at the election polls. what do you say? >> it think? getting that is absolutely right. when i talked to democrats on capitol, what they're telling me is that love to put this off after the 2014 election. i think that the entire law may actually be delayed. gerri: really? the government is saying there is no way we will do that
for a solution because i hear from people from medicare to say i am really worried will lose my doctor over time that they will work with people who are really wealthy. i think these people should see what their plans are to major's. >> if they can get a doctor to enter the phone. middle-class it is hard to do. just as an example 82% a and kentucky signed up for medicaid there might not be enough doctors. gerri: what can we do about that problem of? >> if you have private markets we offer by a having a higher wages and attracting people died here is the low reimbursement rates to medicaid to save with the obamacare exchange. they are the medicaid of the future that is not a solution. gerri: out it is on view. have to get your own coverage, find a doctor with the hospital they allow you to use, people say how can i look out for myself? i have spent jockeyed of what still some weeks that does dna testing to look to see what should i be werke to protect myself? >> we will see more personalized madison because of the harnessing of the human genome to be tailored you see that with the problem is obam
rose up and said no, we are not doing this. >> back in 1988, we had the medicare catastrophic coverage act and it was backed by president ronald reagan and it was extremely popular on the medicare program since 1965 they did not have any protection against the financial devastation of catastrophic illness then-president reagan proposed the and the congress, both republicans and democrats backed it and within one year, the law disappeared. >> it went down not because of the concept, everyone who was in favor of this the law was designed in the details were embedded in this law. there were several problems, but the big problem was coverage and a lot of senior citizens have coverage, but what the catastrophic build it was at a universal drug entitlement, a drug benefit, that was going to be paid for with a supplemental premium and this was a tax and people were paying a tax for this drug benefit. and the problem was is that many seniors had already had drug coverage through the place of work and so they were being forced to pay for a benefit they did not want and need. gerri: goodbye to t
, and this is will we get. what do you make of this? >> well, i am not surprised by it. medicare was losing at least a hundred billion dollars a year to fraud and abuse. so we have no reason to expect anything less from this program. when you go from a form that was 62 pages that was set up deliberately to entrap you in a lie about your income to four pages that relies on its own the truth from one does not have to be a genius or even a congressman to figure out what will happen. gerri: lies on your forms. tell me what you mean, dr. mitchell. >> well, i mean what you heard on the video. people are -- the verification of income is going to be very, very difficult to. the original form so much money is available. looking at it as another form of entitlement. and every year the federal government looking to put a cap on something, it does not work. gerri: that is every single year, big scams, medicare, medicaid. as talk about these here for a second because, if you recall, in a hearing with kathleen sibila is she was as sprayed directly, who are these people. here is what she had to say. >> isn't it tr
in between medicare and medicaid rates. these will end up loing a lot like medicaid now works. you look at the same is, the plants that employhe most inside these changes in the medicaid plans because they already have the chief networks. gerri: to that point, speaking about her experiences with the system. here is what she had to say. >> i would likeo be able to make my own choices. i don't see government medical benefits as being anyetter than what i have. yet worse. and so i would feel like a second-class citizen. gerri: steve hopkins wanted to sign up for obamacare. she had a plan, wanted to see what she could get. she ended up on medicaid. did not wann to be there. no desire t do tha. now she is mad. what do you say? >> i wish i had a dime for every time s someone told me that. they signed up for obamacare subsidies and have been essentially put into the medicaid system. a lot of americans are not familiar with how bad it is, but let me give you some examples. the mayo clinic, the best health care -- i mean, the best cancer treatment in the world does not take medicaid. in some cas
